It would be impossible to list them all, since numbers go on forever, but here are some of them: 2 - Prime 3 - Prime 4 - Composite 5 - Prime 6 - Composite 7 - Prime 8 - Composite 9 - Composite 10 - Composite 11 - Prime 12 - Composite 13 - Prime 14 - Composite 15 - Composite 16 - Composite 17 - Prime 18 - Composite 19 - Prime 20 - Composite 21 - Composite 22 - Composite 23 - Prime 24 - Composite 25 - Composite 26 - Composite 27 - Composite 28 - Composite 29 - Prime 30 - Composite 31 - Prime 32 - Composite 33 - Composite 34 - Composite 35 - Composite 36 - Composite 37 - Prime 38 - Composite 39 - Composite 40 - Composite 41 - Prime 42 - Composite 43 - Prime 44 - Composite 45 - Composite 46 - Composite 47 - Prime 48 - Composite 49 - Composite 50 - Composite

no Prime numbers are divisible only by themselves and 1. 40/10 = 4, for example, so no it is not prime.

31, 37, & 41 are prime; 32,33,34,35,36,38,39 & 40 are composite.

neither prime or composite

Including 40 and 50 there are 8 composite numbers because 41, 43 and 47 are prime numbers.

40 is composite.

No because 40 is a composite number with more than two factors.

composite because it has more than two factors.

Look up a table of prime numbers. All those numbers that are not prime, are composite - except 1, which is neither prime nor composite.

not a prime 40 = 4 x 10 = 2 x 20 and so on

30,32,33,34,35,36,38,39,40 are the composite numbers between 30 and 40. Composite numbers are numbers that are not prime numbers.

no Prime numbers are divisible only by themselves and 1. 40/10 = 4, for example, so no it is not prime.

It is a composite number because it has more than two factors

40 is a composite number. This is because composite numbers are any number that has more than two factors(one and itself). Therefore, since 2 and 4 to name a few are factors of 40 that makes it a composite number.

41 is prime, so the next composite is 42 (2*3*7).
